336.2R-88 was reapproved in 2002. Section 6.14 is very short and doesn't say very much. One paragraph recommending staggered lap spices, mats top and bottom, and detailing your splices. I wouldn't spend the money if detailing is all you are after. 336 is mostly about analysis methods.

I went to ACI website and noticed publication ACI 336.2R-88 covers mat foundations.  In the table of contents chapter 6.14--Mat foundation detailing/construction covers this.  Can someone with a 1994 or later Manual of Practice look this up and see if this chapter has good suggestions for detailing and construction?  I don't want to buy it if it doesn't.

Fellow Engineers,


I am looking for some guidance on a Mat Footing.

It is 2 feet thick and 86'x75'.  Winterkorn and Fang recommend placing the concrete in approximately 30 foot square sections and letting each pour set for two days before placing the next adjacent area.  I am looking for some guideance on how to specify the joints.

Thanks in advance.
